On February 18, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI officially elevated New York’s Archbishop, Timothy Dolan, to Cardinal during a formal ceremony at the Vatican.
Archbishop Dolan joins staff members at the Catholic Charities Immigration Hotline in 2009.
Since he first came to New York, Cardinal Dolan has been actively involved in the work of the Catholic Charities federation — blessing agency facilities, meeting with program participants, volunteering alongside our Junior Board — even building gingerbread houses with children.
